Re: HD connected to Router is read only. Can not change
The permission in such case has to do with the Network Storage (NAS) and Not
Not every external USB HD is a Network Drive. I assume that what you call
external USB HD is a Network Drive, and the Router has a general USB Server
(Most of the Routers USB is only for printers).
Check with Belkin to find out if the HD is compatible with the USB Server,
and how to make it compatible with Windows sharing. Almost all of the NAS'
are not based on Windows firmware and need a special setting to share with
Otherwise give more detailed about the hardware and how it is connected.
